SMITHFIELD, R.I. – The Bryant University men's swimming and diving team posted five first-place finishes on Wednesday night but fell at Boston University, 167-130.  

Coach Cameron's Thoughts

"We actually swam very well! Score might not show it by we had great effort tonight. Several season best times which is hard to do in January - only a few days after returning from training trip. I am pleased with where we are and excited about where we are headed!"

How the Swimmers Fared

  • Hours after being named MAAC Swimmer of the Week, graduate student Micah Ornelas (San Diego, Calif.) won two individual events and was part of a first-place relay team. He won the 50 back (23.39) and 50 fly (21.72) and finished second in the 100 free (47.02).
  • In the 200 medley relay, Ornelas swam the third leg along with Matthew Mays (St. Croix, Virgin Islands), Tavish Boyle (Springfield, N.J.) and Matt Zichelli (Glen Ridge, N.J.). The group posted a winning time of 1:33.31.
  • Mays posted a victory in the 200 back, finishing with a time of 1:51.84.
  • Boyle added second-place finishes in the 50 breast (26.95) and 200 breast (2:09.91).

  • Zach Vogel (South Easton, Mass.) finished right behind him both with scores of 232.50 in the 3-meter and 221.10 in the 1-meter.
